Second strike by Tilbury dockers over attack on contracts

Dockers at Tilbury will strike again on Monday in their dispute with Enterprise Distribution Centre (EDC) over the arbitrary introduction of new contracts which will mean losing 2,500 on average a year.

The 45 employees of EDC, members of Unite, will be striking for 48 hours from 6am on Monday 21 May.

This follows a 24-hour strike on 7-8 May - the first strike by dockers at Tilbury in Essex since 1989.
